My name is Nathan, and I'm bad at love.

So I'm turning to the 11th season of The Bachelorette for help. Week 2 of dating is all about separating yourself from the competition. My date, just like Kaitlyn, still has several men to choose from, and it's up to me to stand out and move on to week 3. Here is what I learned from last night's episode to make that happen:

1. Don't pay more attention to other women during the date.

Most men on the first group date tried to get as much time with Kaitlyn as possible. Kupah is not most men. He thought impressing boxing champion Laila Ali with his work ethic would be the quickest way to Kaitlyn's heart. I'll admit I was surprised when this forward-thinking strategy did not work. It turns out if you don't acknowledge the woman you are dating she might forget you are on a date in the first place. Good to know.

2. Do knock out the competition (or get literally knocked out).
